Can anyone identify this rose please? IF I can add a photo!!

Thanks to all your responses...I am sure I will identify it.




sorry I cant but look at catalogues of Beales roses [Attleborough Norfolk] or David Austin roses. Good luck with finding it.

Don't take this the wrong way but try googling 'rose identification for dummies'. The website will give you tips to narrow down the type e.g. Tea, polyanthas, etc. from it's flower size, growing habit & so on.
Not a definitive ID but a step towards it

The one that immediately sprang to mind was Rosa Veilchenblau.

I'd say its a rambler by the small, clustered flowers; I agree with Pennyfarthing, that's what it looks like to me too (veilchenblau is a rambling rose). Its a large rose, up to 20 feet eventually. Internet images of it are usually retouched to make it look like the flowers are more purplish pink, but the image you posted does, I have to say, look a little too pink to be a perfect match for Vielchenblau... but very similar otherwise.
