Nubian Influence of Predynastic Egypt (and thus Masonry).

 Reverse side of Narmer's Palatte

 

You are correct but the funeral is not for an infant but for the decapitated head on the opposite side of the Palette.

Using the figure you present, from left to right you have, first the Purification Temple where the body was washed in an enclosed rectangular space. The small figure (actually a Dwarf) is a Priest called the Lecture.

Next is Narmer who probably came from Nubia originally (Egyptologists don't like to admit the influence Nubia had on Predynastic Egypt). The two headdresses he wears of upper and lower Egypt both come from upper Egypt and you find them in very archaic form in the hieroglyphs for the Sanctuaries of Men (Men gets his name for the mountain of the west called Menu).

Next you have the (hired) mourner and the four embalmers (all dwarfs who also came from upper Egypt, probably).

The funeral barge is there as well as the glyph for the door of the complex.

The ten bodies are the exact amount of enemies depicted on Djet's Ivory Comb making the deceased of Narmer's Palatte to be that individual - they are reciting the 'good deeds' of the hero at his funeral (this before the days of the negative confession).

There is a lot more I could say about this but what you have is the Zep Tepi of Osiris (the word is actually used on the Ivory Comb) and Narmer's Palatte records that death and the revenge of Horus who is Narmer.

He is also, assuredly Khasekhemvy who claimed to be the incarnation of Horus. Khasekmenvy uses the Heraldic Crest of both Horus and Set which has caused many Egyptologists to be perplexed and no one has explained this but the answer is very simple (as Mark Lehner points out in his book on the Complete Pyramids in the Funeral section) and that is that the person who buries the owner of the estate becomes the inheritor of the estate and Horus buried Set and thus inherited his estate and used his Crest. Khasekhemvy, who claimed to be Horus incarnate, is claiming to be Horus. Take this with what Toby Wilkinson says in his book (Rise and Fall of Ancient Egypt), that the King's in Ancient Egypt were the gods and what you have is the Osirian Mythology come to life with names and statues of the people involved.
