If the birth father comes from a line of single mothers and or fathered other children with single mothers surnames won't help you find matches .

As you can identify the matches to 3 grandparents.. can you now mark all the matches over 30cm that do not match any of the matches that are shared with the top matches from them .

After grouping the unknown grandfather matches if they have trees look at their ancestors locations . If not take a look at their ethnicity . You might be able to rule out one side of their trees or see a pattern that does match your father ie a high Welsh percent .

Did you try following paper trail to find if Florence Miles went to court to get an affiliation order for Nancy Olive .?

I suppose You've seen the 1911 census Hornsby

 where Nancy O MILES  is a nurse child aged 2 months  with Charles William + Emma DUBERY who have an 8year old daughter and another nurse child baby Fred smith .

Have you found her in 1921
The DUBERY s or SLATERS could have been related or could have been paid to take on children

Just skimmed through the replies....
Don't think anyone mentioned up loading your father's DNA results to GEDMATCH.
That might prove very helpful.
