Cotoneaster Horizontalis removal

They are attractive shrubs if you can keep upto them, but quite simply put my grandma can't, hence why we want it gone. I'm going to cut it right back tomorrow and then apply the stump killer like suggested, We've cut it right back in hopes it would grow a little more manageable but frankly it's just come back much thicker and grown in more awkward positions, so it has to go.

Years ago my grandfather put this into his garden for some reason and since then it's grown beyond control, taking over fences and growing out into a snicket and making it difficult to walk down. He passed away and my grandma can't keep upto it so we're looking to remove it, I dug down a few inches but the roots have grown deep, wide and thick. What is the best method of removing this pest, Am I forced to remove it or can I use some form of pesticide to get rid of it?

 

For the record it's this horrid thing:
