Closer view needed

Nice photo, showing the context well, but there are several grey lichens that can form extensive crusts on gravestones, and I am afraid that without a high resolution, close up view, any ID would be pure speculation. Chemical testing is often necessary, which iSpot has not yet made possible on the posted photographs.
