Probably correct (as V. baldensis)

but identification of these requires at least a very close examination with a lens, or a high-resolution extreme close-up.

Knowing the type of rock, or in this case, headstone, on which the lichen is growing can be helpful in lichen identification. Verrucaria baldensis is found on limestone, for example. Have you followed the Group link on the Home page to Fungi and Lichens? This gives several other useful lichen links, in addition to Alan's www.lichens.lastdragon.org
