Green grocer
« on: Wednesday 29 November 17 22:24 GMT (UK) »
Would there be any way to find any documents about a green grocer stall.
Have a relative that was the a Holder of a stall, and other family members are listed on censusí as being a green grocer Iím presuming that it was on the stall that they owed. But not sure if there would be any info about it anywhere. Could anyone help?

No details given of a timescale or a locality but most unlikely any records would exist

Would have been somewhere in West Ham and from 1881- 1939 possibly older thatís the last date I have on paper at the moment.
And I didnít really think there would be anything about it.

It could be possible that the local council has some information, if they licensed the area where the stall was located.

My London greengrocer ancestors started with stalls then shops and a partnership; found them in the London Gazette when the partnership changed. Might be worth looking.
