Kirkbrides in South Africa

I would like to contact any relatives of George Frith Kirkbride, or Francis Edward Kirkbride, who currently live in South Africa to exchange family history information.
George Frith Kirkbride was born in Tasmania on 13 July 1862 and spent his early life in Victoria. It is believes that he and at least two of his sons, George Thomas Kirkbride (b1888-d1961), and Francis Edward Kirkbride (b1891 - d Bef 1961) lived in South Africa (Durban?) in the early 1900s. George retuned to Vic before 1916 and enlisted in the AIF. It is possible that George died in South Africa before 1916. Francis Edward Kirkbride appears to have remanined in Africa after 1916 and is known to have died there sometime before 1961. I have information on the Australian side of the family.
I am also trying to find information about a statue or memorial to members of this Kirkbride family in South Africa (probably in Durban?). Thank you
Melbourne, Vic, Australia.
