My take on this is simply if the statue recipient is not identifiable, then I don't see what legal issue could arise as the statue is in public and therefore subject to no privacy laws that I am aware of. This is just my opinion.
However, I would check with the cemetery to see if they have any restrictions on photography.
If all else fails, see if you can contact a manufacturer and perhaps take a photo of an unused statue and then photoshop it.
Hope that helps.
