Angels raise a Question

When I visited Brookwood Cemetery many, many years ago, I took photographs of several of the angel memorials. When scanning the negatives recently, I noticed they had stars on their heads. Does anyone know why? I read somewhere that a five pointed star on a memorial linked the deceased to Freemasonry.

I noticed the stars on Angels too, and assumed they suggested celestial light.....
