I understand your question but to choose the right answer requires more information on the context. Just by looking at the choices I'd say both are possible.
thank you. i will have a look at the context more closely.

I would go with "many more/elderly people", assuming the writer is proficient. "more elderly" would be awkward to explain....."elderly" is such a general term that it seems not to have much need for a comparative.
I think it is many more/elderly people too. It would be an odd way to express the other meaning..the writer would probably use 'many extremely elderly people' in that case.

So, would it also be unusual to write "many, more elderly, people", IYO?

many, more elderly people looks very odd. Try many of the more elderly. (Meaning "more elder than the other who have been discussed.)

As the Baby Boomers approach and pass 60, they continue to embrace technology, but many of the more elderly have a harder time using cell phones and other high-tech gadgets we take for granted every day.

Although my 60-year-old friends will smack me for implying that they are elderly in contrast to the "more elderly" folks out there.
