Please identify a rose

I have a mystery rose. I rescued it from going to skip in winter and potted. Not sure about its eventual size or growth habit. It has repeated well, I like it's colour and it is fragrant. If you could identify it, that would be very helpful. It has some blackspots now and leaves are big.

    Worth rescuing whatever it is.
    In London. Keen but lazy.

    Yes, my first thought was to not keep it as I already have so many, then I thought let me see how it is.

    There are so many pink roses, it's not easy. Maybe @Marlorena could help. Try Peter Beales Classic Roses website.

    No idea, sorry...  for roses like these, one would need to know where it was obtained from originally, which might provide a clue..

    Thanks for looking into it. I also thought it would be very very small chance to identify without knowing more about it. 

    It was dug out by new owner of house for kitchen extension. He doesn't know.
