On the first image, the majority seems to be set in ScotchKut Condensed Roman, while the last two lines are set in Vermarco. These two typefaces are specific to the monument/gravestone industry.

The bottom image is set in a commercial typeface, Lydian, first released in 1938 in metal type and still available as a digital typeface.
