Not that it really matters... but it was Wilfred Brambell.  Like a
significant number of the cast of the film he is, alas, no longer with
us.

Best wishes,

I don't suppose I'll be the only one to point out that the actor who
deserves his due for playing Paul's clean old grandfather in A HARD
DAY'S NIGHT was not Wilford Bramley but Wilfrid Brambell, better known
to British audiences as Steptoe Senior in the (superior) British version
of SANFORD AND SON.
