5 candled menorah?

I visited a Jewish cemetery today to do some genealogy and I noticed a lot of the tombstones had 5 candled menorahs.

What is the significance of these? I understand a 7 candled menorah is the Temple menorah, but what is the 5 candled menorah?

Also a number of the stones in the area were toppled and there was some litter. Any advice on the best way to report that to the cemetery office? I’m guessing it wasn’t vandalism but just…neglect…as there was no spraypaint (lol). But anythings possible in this day and age..
