Tombs on Tombs

I noticed two of the Clitheroe cemetery headstones each had a tomb or sarcophagus at their head. The first has dove which appears to be offering  an olive twig to the occupant - the tomb is open. The second is either a palm leaf or willow branch draped over the tomb. Maybe a curtain? A positive i.d. would be welcomed.
