gRod, Welcome to RetouchPRO Hope you enjoy your stay here and make lots of friends. Poke around, ask questions, have fun!

Quick fixes:

for jumper... change the text layer mode to multiply and lower opacity to blend with the other text

Tombstone..change text layer to multiply and lower the opacity to suit..... use free transform tool and line up text with the top and sides of the shield using the rotate arrows.. then using the perspective make the right side a bit smaller or the left side a bit larger

gRod, for the letters on the uniform, create a Displacemnt Map (Filter>Distort>Displacement Map) if you want the lettering to look realistic and follow the contour / creases of the uniform.
For the letters on the Stone, apply a Layer Style to your text layer. Bevel / Emboss and an inner shadow will make your text look like it is engraved into the stone. Samples attached but the resolution is low so the effect will not look as good as on your higher res image.
Regards, Murray
