About the memorial: The garden is located to the rear of the Royal British region building in Droghadfayle Road. It consists of a garden area accessed via wrought iron gates incorporating the letters RBL. The garden contains as a centrepiece a large wooden cross set into a concrete base, on which there is a plaque commemorating its unveiling and the dedication of the garden on 22 July 1990.The garden is bounded by a low wall surmounted by chains between wooden posts, incorporates paved and gravelled areas and planted beds, two flagpoles flanking the central wooden cross and three wooden seats. Two of the seats bear perspex type plaques stating they were 'Donated by Rushen Round Table In Memory Of Those Fallen In Service' and 'Presented by The Commissioners of Port Erin In Memory Of Those Fallen In Service'. Unfortunately, both plaques have weathered badly, as has the unveiling and dedication plaque at the base of the Cross. The garden is backed by wooden trellis with climbing plants and also incorporates two trees. Overall, the garden is in fair condition. Weeds are starting to appear amongst the gravel and whilst the seats appear to have been recently re-treated with brown wood-preserver, this has dripped onto/overpainted the plaques attached to them. It is unclear which particular wars are commemorated, although it appears from the bench plaques that the garden is dedicated to all those who have Fallen in Service.
