A Cemetery Mystery

I would welcome any thoughts on this early 1930s memorial in Liverpool Road Cemetery (Birkdale). At first, I thought the heads were those of cherubs but now I am not so sure. It may just be the result of erosion but the right hand head looks less 'alive' than it's companions. I've not seen anything like it before, but others may have seen similar.

I have a photo of one very similar, but with five cherubs heads and I will post it soon on Sleeping Gardens so you can see it.

Thanks, Holi'. I will look out for it.
