There seems to be a lot of conflicting information online. There doesn’t seem to be any doubt that putting sand and cement on a solid wall Victorian is a dumb idea but is it really the case that you have to resort to lime render?
A lot of companies quote that their render is breathable. Krend, Parex, Weber, Vimark, Baumit etc then refuse to publish any stats about the breathability of their product. It seems like it’s a positive quality you want in your render for older properties but none of these guys can back up their claims.
Modern breathable render. Does it exist or is traditional lime rendering the only serious option for Victorian properties even today.

I always bang on about Marley Cedral. This is the cement board siding that will allow an air movement behind but protect against weather. Considerably cheaper than Monocouche it will give a pleasing finish although it might not suit the Victorian style of building. Have a look at this to get an idea https://www.cedral.world/en-gb/cladding/
I hope this helps
