Kenyan ancestry

I know I have asked this question before, but I have not yet received any advice so here goes again.. My husbands family were from Ticehurst and his gfather and his wife emmigrated to Kenya in the early 1900's (not sure if it was only him that went). The offspring married in Kenya and I only have info on my husbands father and mother and not their siblings They then moved on to South Africa in the 1960's. I have many gaps - marriages, births and deaths that I am unable to trace from the time they moved to Kenya. Does anyone know of a site where I can look up colonial bmd's. I have looked on cindi's list and heather's site in South Africa. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you (sorry to be so long winded) Tracy, Brotherton, Yorks
