The translation is okay (i.e. it’s not ungrammatical) but the more colloquial form is: “Grandfather walks slower than they do.”

This sentence actually doesn’t suggest ownership i.e. my/मेरा। It could be translated “The grandfather walks slower than they do.” As though a narrator is telling us what is happening.

You’re right. There’s no ‘my’ involved. But my comment was on the other part of the translation — they do, vs them. I’ll edit my original post.
