Sorry if wrong thread etc. Any ideas on this rose, which we can't identifiy even given we have 70 years; gardening experience between us. We had to name it temporarily 'Elsa's rose' after the previous gardener. It is a very loose habit, and the blooms don't last long in our South Devon garden. Thanks, if you can.....

My first thought was Autumn Damask, but it would help to have pictures of the whole plant, the leaves, thorns, etc. Also is it a once bloomer or does it repeat, fragrance, health ? - anything that you can think of to help narrow it down.

I doubt very much if I can help. But in case I am wrong...

I wonder if you have been able to rule out Cornelia? Its particular warm shade of pink with the yellow stamens suggests that cultivar to me, though I have never grown it. If you have ruled it out then I guess that is one down and about ten thousand more to go.

I agree with porkpal that information on the size and habit of the plant, whether the foliage is rough or smooth, darker green or closer to chartreuse, how it is branched, whether it repeats, when it was planted, could help a lot.
