Hebrew naming #unitedkingdom

On finding my Great grandmothers grave at Edmonton
Federation cemetary,I have a querry for geners with
more knowledge then me,At the top of her grave are
enclosed hands with 2 candlesticks,Which i read as
meaning a Cohen,Which has confused me as i have always
known this to be passed through the male line and dont
understand the meaning of this.
To add to the confusion her fathers name on her
marriage certificate is Israel,A hebrew name in its
own right,Yet on the grave in Hebrew she is Chana bet
Binyamin(Benjamin) im am now totaly confused by this,I
know i have the right grave,If anyone can enlighten me
on either subject i would appreciate it.
Many thanks
Malcolm Katz
