I found only one other hit for that manufacturer, a trumpet being sold on some type of U.K. website for 50 pounds.

I don’t believe that the instrument has any real monetary value.

The photos may help.
Also, if it is in somewhat playable condition (doesn't have to be in perfect condition), any professional or even semi-professional player may be able to at least evaluate the sound quality.
If your father played professionally there is a good chance of the clarinet to be a decent instrument, IMHO.
