The relationships are to the HEAD of the household - so Alfred was Thomas's son.......... try looking for him in 1901 with Thomas and first wife

If Alfred and Charles Knowles are with their grandparents on the 1901 census there is this marriage.

England & Wales, FreeBMD Marriage Index, 1837-1915
about Moses Perry
Name: Moses Perry
Date of Registration: Jul-Aug-Sep 1895
Registration district: Wakefield
Inferred County: Yorkshire West Riding
Volume Number: 9c
Page Number: 108



Jane Knowles Jul-Aug-Sep 1895 Wakefield Yorkshire West Riding

Moses Perry Jul-Aug-Sep 1895 Wakefield Yorkshire West Riding


So I would think that Jane was actually the grandmother who married Moses as a widow as I think he was married before.
