"I gather the Zermatt route is bus Grachen to St Nicklaus then train St Nicklaus to Zermatt"
Yes, the PDF I already gave you the link to shows the bus route and key connections (like all Swiss official timetables).
You will get used to reading how the Swiss Kursbuch timetables are set out, but a couple of basics: the A in a circle means runs Mondays - Fridays (working days), and a C in a circle means runs Saturdays, Sundays and holidays - these are both international standard timetable symbols used across Europe.
By my reckoning your chalet is not far down the hill from Grächen Post so you should take the timings from that stop (the terminus)
if you look at the PDF I gave you, you will see that, for example, if you leave Grächen Post at 08.09 on Mondays - Fridays you will reach St Niklaus Bahnhof (station) at 08.33. There is a solid line running along underneath the times for St Niklaus so that mens that the timings below are all connections (in this case MGB railway trains). So on arrival at 08.33 at St Niklaus, you will have a choice of the 08.36 uphill to Zermatt arrive 09.14, or the 08.50 down the valley to Visp or Brig.
the last bus departs St Niklaus at 21.40 (with a late night addition at 23.07 on Fridays and Saturdays )
