Greasby's is a well known South London firm of Public Auctioneers, that was established in 1919 by Henrietta Greasby, we have operated from the original site since that date. The original saleroom was stables and was demolited some forty years ago and replaced by a two story building.
The firm was incorporated in 1958 and remained with the Greasby family until 1968, it was at that point it was purchased by Tom Crow who was the present owner's father. He built on the existing company taking it to greater levels. The present Managing Director Christine Sachett started working with he father in the early seventies at root level and worked her way through the company and on her fathers retirement in 1987 assumed overall control in the running of the business. In 1989 she inherited the remainder of the shares and is now the Principle Owner, Auctioneer and Valuer supported by Kevin Morgan the Auction manager.
