As with the "lost" village of Haywood in Lanarkshire Lassodie no longer exists. A mining village, the closure of the mines signalled its death knell and by the late 1940's it was completely gone.
The memorial was taken from the original location, outside Lassodie Public Hall, and erected at the roadside of the B912.
