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.

He was still at sea in 1901 unfortunately his wife was an alcoholic who probably stretched the truth a bit .
