Just to add the John McNicol Miller registration in Bonhilll is the same one as the John McNicol Duff in Bomhill also indexed under Crerar and Miller
As he is registered under Miller his father went and registered him with your gt grandmother and his name will be on the certificate
It also appears to have been registered in Springburn as well I would guess this is because your Grt grandmother was married to James Duff and John wasn't his child she had him away from the family home and he was born and registered in Springburn but also it was forwarded on to  Bonhill as that was her usual residence

Really helpful, thank you EVERYONE!!!  I was so confused about all these different names and locations... it seems like the mud is clearing.

Have you connected the Crerar and the McNicol families. Could he have been given to a family member?

Added: How do you know he was ‘given’ to a McNicol family?

Jamjar

My Mum was able to tell me that about him.  She vaguely remembers her Grandma McNicol, and knew that there was an affair with a bus driver.... I don't know how the McNicols came to be involved, but I was told that they "helped a woman out of a situation."
