Possibly, from right to left - preacher in the centre with hand resting on the bible, a skeleton ('King of Terrors' depicting death) holding onto the preacher's stick. The skeleton in turn is holding an hourglass indicating the passing of time ('well known to all who watched it during the long sermons' - Betty Willsher). I wonder if the headstone carver was indicating the preacher's sermons were too long?!

Cowfeeder in Brickfield near Leith
Who died on the 17th Feby 1811
At the top is a sad looking 'Green Man'.
A headstone with some good carvings. It looks like the Crown of Righteousness and a Cordiner's knife indicating a shoemaker. A winged soul on the top and a mostly buried Death's Head at the bottom.
