Which rose is this?

Many years ago I admired a pale pink HT in someone’s garden and was told it was called ‘Memoriam’, so I duly ordered one. When it flowered it was obviously not the same - a white floribunda. I never sent it back (which I suppose I should have done!) and have always thought it might. be Iceberg. It’s a lovely bush, very vigorous and healthy  with a faint scent. I do have what I know to be climbing Iceberg in another part of the garden and it is a pathetic weedy specimen, always full of black spot, gets defoliated every year, hardly grows  despite being lovingly tended! So my question is, is my healthy bush Iceberg?

    Hi Hotwax, it’s a beauty but I’ve no idea which one it is. Maybe our rose expert will be able to help you out. @Marlorena usually pops on every day so will hopefully spot this. 
    Life's tragedy is that we get old too soon and wise too late.

    ...certainly looks like it.. a very nice specimen too, showing the benefit of maturity...

    Iceberg buds tend to have a pink tinge about them.
    In London. Keen but lazy.
