Yes, the leaves are similar but my flowers are much simpler; not 'double'. Also as you can see in my photo the bush is very compact, not 'rambling' at all though do I prune the very occasional stray branch.
Please supply close ups of the an individual flower, a flower cluster, mature and juvenile foliage, also indications of scent, thorns etc...
All these things are imperative to obtain a better i.d. without them, we are just guessing... it looks like this, or it looks like that, and so on..
If adequate photos are supplied, then I could possibly look it up for you on a specialist site, as I'm a subscribed [paid up] member of that site which allows me to do those kinds of searches,.. but I do need much better, detailed pictures from you, I'm afraid..
...alternatively, if you can't do that, you might like to check out Trevor White Roses, under their rambling or specie roses sections, to see if the rose you have, and you are the only one so far who can see it clearly, is listed, as it is likely the rose came from them or Peter Beales originally... I find T White has the better photos these days..
...I can also see it's more of a very large shrub that's taken time to develop as you say.
...back in the 1980's/1990's this rose was offered by the main vendors, although it's not offered so much today.. it should have a good scent to it.
...do you think this might be it?..
