Any suggestions please? Probably a little overgrown, height about 2m width 1m. Lovely creamy flower balls but no scent.

It looks like a snowball bush - otherwise knows as Viburnum opolus - although it should have a scent. Perhaps because it's so shaded and overgrown the scent is less or missing.

My parents have one in their garden and it gets quite big. Can you move it or give it more space?

It's a Viburnum Opulus. Lovely shrub and used for cut flowers

Viburnum opulus "sterile"
Lovely flowers, but the sterile refers to the fact that it does not produce seeds as the centre part of the flower have changed into extra petals.
Grows into a medium large shrub but can be pruned hard in early spring if need be or lightly after flowering.
If you want a similar plant with scent chose Viburnum × carlcephalum or Viburnum × burkwoodii which both take longer to come into flower & may not produce so many flowers the scent is stunning.
