Not sure as to whether they ever flew a Houseflag but the parent company (Kettlewell) is still in existance. An email to them may provide the answer. Their web page is www.kettlewell.com. Kettlewells also accquired Atkinson & *****ett but these already had their own funnel colours and Houseflag (3 horizontal bands of blue/white/red with the initials A & P in black on the white).
Kind regards

I see the net nanny won't let me put the full name for Atkinson & P.... so read it as Brickett and change the B to an P!
