Crown Oil began trading in 1928 and was run by Harry Greensmith; affectionately known as “Harry Lamp Oil”. Harry traded door-to-door from a wooden cart, providing household goods, such as firelighters, candles, and lamp oil. After World War II, Harry expanded the product range of the company to include the bulk supply of fuels and lubricants.
