I'm trying to find the name of a greengrocers that traded in Burwash Road, Plumstead SE18 during the 50's through to the early 70's. It was the only shop in the road. If anyone could point me in the right direction I would be very grateful.

Have you looked at historicaldirectories to see if they go to those dates

I think they changed the name so probably this one now

You could try to find out if there is a local (free?) paper. If there is and it has a letters page put a request for information in it. We occasionally get that sort of request in ours.

Worth a try
