Have you checked the GRO indexes for children with mother Lilley and checked 1911 census for number of children born to the marriage?

there is no birth place and this lady is unmarried - possibly not your Elizabeth Rule.

Hello,

There is a 1914 marriage here to a Mary Flattery - transcription.

https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/marriage_returns/marriages_1914/09866/5583811.pdf

His father is also Michael and that fits with the 1939 marriage of Michael Younge to Anne Wynne.

Regards
Heywood

Family Search shows the name Brüdigam in Germany.  :-\

It is frustrating that his obituary states that he was employed at the Electricity works for 'several years' but he is not in 1901 census.

Do you have his father's name and occupation?

There is a John Brodegan on some crew lists but presumably not your man as he is born Liverpool and living there in 1881.
Is there a place of birth on the crew lists you found? Sorry, I see you have given that.
What is his occupation on the children's birth certificates?

What is your John's father's name and occupation on the marriage certificate?

World War One / Re: Whittaker Fred and Schofield James

From my lay perspective, I thought that's what I meant, Max  :) although I understand now that they are two Manchester Regiment numbers and not the previous Battalion.

However, thankfully you have solved one of Julienne's queries. Perhaps the army record for Fred will never turn up! Heather has found his parents so quite a good result.

His war nos were 9031 and 486926

Max,

On the record you found, James Schofield is 486926 - Manchester Regiment. That number is written over a scribbled one which could be 9031 - difficult to see. Would that have been his number when he was in the 3rd BT R... Regiment which he joined earlier?
