About the memorial: Ballymena Memorial Park and Obelisk is located at Galgorm Road opposite the Police Station. The Memorial Park was given as a gift to the town in 1917. Several years later Major-General Sir Oliver Nugent formally declared the Memorial Park open and unveiled the Memorial.There are 491 names of the Fallen from the Great War on the memorial; that meant that between 3,000 and 4,000 from Ballymena and district had served in the armed services. About 1,500 of them served in the 12th Battalion R.I.R., which was recruited in County Antrim and formed part of the 36th Ulster Division.

1914-1918. To the Glory of God and in everlasting memory of the officers, non-commissioned officers, and men from the Ballymena urban and rural districts who fell in the Great War. They shall not grow old as we that are left grow old; age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning we shall remember them.
