As the lower part of the inscription states, the memorial was "erected in April 2007 by the 1820 Society with the permission of J.Pollock and sons".

The memorial is located within its own small enclosure on the southern side of Bonnyhill Road, and is the site of an annual commemoration. See NS8379 : Memorial to Battle of Bonnymuir for a view of the memorial in context.

John Baird and Andrew Hardie, who are mentioned in the inscription, are commemorated, along with James Wilson, by the NS4663 : 1820 Martyrs' Monument, Woodside Cemetery (in Paisley). Baird and Hardie are also commemorated by the NS6067 : 1820 Martyrs' Monument, Sighthill Cemetery, beside which they are buried, while James Wilson is commemorated at his burial site in Strathaven: NS7044 : Memorial to James 'Purly' Wilson.
