Research Query--Historical Business in London

I am trying to find out more about a British publisher/advertiser/theatre program distributer called Grantley & Co. They published and distributed a particular type of theatre program that I am researching called The Magazine-Programme. I have found the company in digitized phone book records. I know its address and phone number (48 Leicester Sq, WC, Gerrard 3730 then 5424) and that it was founded in 1898. I believe the company was liquidated in 1967. But I cannot find any information about who owned it or any other details about its organization or business practices.
