They cover 1813–1880 inclusive and the details provided for each record include the infant's name and date of birth, the name and surname of the father, the mother's first name and maiden name, their townland or street where the family lived, together with the date of baptism. In some case, annotations provide additional information.

The database already holds transcripts from the marriage register for the same church from 1845 to 1921.

This church, originally on High Street, was designated as Ballymena Second Presbyterian Church, Kirkinriola Parish following the formation of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in 1840.
