Can I transcribe multiple headstones in the same image when all are legible?

No no please do not do this. Only transcribe the person or people on the main headstone in the centre of the picture. Just because you can see names on other nearby headstones does not mean you should transcribe them. Each headstone should have it's own memorial page. If you do this it will really mess things up and is hard work to undo,
