Gustavo Barawitzka (1856-1936) was the founder and proprietor of the Criterion Restaurant in Market Street. He arrived on Tyneside from Italy in the 1870s and obtained British nationality in 1901. In 1891 he organised a banquet to commemorate the 21st anniversary of the storming of Rome which led to the unification of Italy. His impressive monument is in classical style and stands in the south-west corner of the cemetery.
