Headstone question #general

I have a photo of an Australian headstone which clearly reads
Sabattai ben Menachem :Vav Vais Vav Lamed Hay

His father was Mark and his mother was Bella
Can it be that the stone carried his father's and his mother's name ?
Sabattai was his maternal grandfather .

Comments please

May I thank all those listers that offered comments
It appears that including a mother's name on a headstone in addition to the
father's is not uncommon although I have not seen one in UK orthodox
cemeteries
