Rosa 'Mme Alfred Carriere' is perfectly suited to a north facing wall. It would look great there. If you train the main branches as near to horizontal as possible the side shoots will produce lots of blooms.
it will be best to fix strong wires to the wall for training the roses before you plant them.
There are other roses which would also be happy there. Take a look o the Classic Roses website.
Alpina varieties of clematis would flower well there. They are blooming now, so would give you colour before the roses begin to flower.
None of these are evergreen, but you can't have everything
