Dart on a Headstone

Trumpet and dart

A dart indicates death, as shown here held by an angel

Darts, arrows and spears all appear on headstones to represent death, not how the person died. 

They are also used in egg and dart reliefs around the edges of monuments and headstones, representing life and death.
