I have a nice rose 'Chatterbox' that must be at least 30 years old which was on it's last legs two years ago - I dug it up, put it in a pot in the greenhouse and eventually new shoots appeared ! Now it is back and thriving in the garden. So if you really can't find out the name of your rose doing this might be worth a try. Good luck.
