For me I've only ever found two types of vegan bread, one is the Vogal Soya bread and one is Waitrose brand sour bread. Both are quite nice but Vogal is more sandwich sized which is handy. I also use Rhye bread but only for peanut butter sarnies.
Mostly because I shop at Waitrose and H&B and this is a small town/city with very little in it. Luckily I have a shop that sells seasonal fruit and veg right from a local farm. However, I went through some of the bread at Tesco but didn't want to read every single packet so I gave up and went to Waitrose where they section off their bread and have a "speciality corner". Sadly they don't have much there. About 3/4 types
It's a bit of a pain but once you've checked the ingredients you don't usually need to check again, bread recipes don't tend to change. Most UK bread is vegan, check out the Tesco vegan list. Only thing that usually stops me buying bread is l-cysteine which they often put in tortilla wraps.

Burgen Buckwheat & Poppyseed Loaf (with vit D) and Burgen Soya & Linseed are 2 of my favourites.
Also the New York Bakery bagels are all labelled as vegan.
Almost all Kingsmill bread is vegan, this is from their website:
Are Kingsmill products suitable for vegetarians?
The only bread not suitable for vegetarians or vegans is Kingsmill 50/50 with Omega 3 because the omega 3 is sourced from fish oil (the most effective form).All of our other breads are made only with vegetable fats and the emulsifiers used (E471, E472e) are sourced from vegetable oils. Any tin grease used is also made from vegetable oils, and all enzymes are suitable for vegetarians.There have been some reports that bread can be made with animal based enzymes but we would like to assure you that we do not use any animal enzymes in our Kingsmill products.We thoroughly check all of our ingredients including enzymes, to ensure that they are vegetarian. The only product that we produce that is not suitable for vegetarians has omega 3 derived from fish and is clearly labelled as 'not suitable for vegetarians'.
This is a list (from a little while ago) listing Warburtons products that do not contain milk or any any animal ingredients, but are made in a bakery where milk/eggs are used:
Our Thickest Slice White
Soft White Farmhouse
Stoneground Wholemeal Batch
Waitrose also has a list telling you which of its own brand products are vegan. I thought someone had posted it on here but I can't see it so I've just asked them to send me one and will try and post it on here once I get it. You could always ask them too - see this page http://www.waitrose.com/home/inspira...gan_diets.html (near the bottom)
Do you have a Co-op where you are? A lot of their baked goods are vegan and they do a list too I think.
I have a co-op but it doesn't sell much other than drinks, chocoalte and cigarettes. My local Waitrose is a bit small and they don't have much, in fact their bread section is tiny. They do section off their "speciality" bread but only 2/3 of these are Vegan. On the upside, the Vogals soya and seed bread is really nice
