The one for Sheindel has been vandalized and bulk of the inscription has been chiseled off. All it says is Sheindel bas Peretz.Nothing else

The one for Meier lists his full name was Meier Eliezer ben Tsvi Velvel.  There is a lengthy inscription which perhaps someone with Hebrew fluency can make out.
The very last line lists his date of death.
I have had good luck with copying & pasting the image into a photo editor (I use the free IrfanView program) and playing with increasing and decreasing gamma, contrast and / or brightness. Sometimes changing the image to a negative helps to read a black & white inscription.
