The CWG site has two entries for this cemetery - Lasswade Cemetery and Lasswade Old Churchyard. One is opposite the other two across a country lane.

To get to Lasswade Cemetery follow the Lasswade Road (A768) heading towards Bonnyrigg. Just past the Laird and Dug pub on the right before you cross the bridge there is a small side road (School Green). Turn into this road and go up the hill (School Brae), the cemetery and parking area is on your right

Split into three sections - one contains the old Kirk, old graves and is very tidy. The other just to the side of this one contains some old graves and not quite so tidy and the newer section is across the road from these two, with the burials on the side of the hill.
