Chaenomeles won't budge

Lol - kettle is on, and I'll get chocolate biscuits in if you have an hour to spare, Lyn!

It's a few large rocks, a couple of feet down, rather than very stony all over - I planted the shrub when I first moved in 25 years ago, so  the area immediately around it is not as well dug as the reast of the patch, but it has all had regular doses of compost and manure, and is in good heart.  I shall have a go at the roots with saw and loppers!

I'm a bit wary of using stump killer, as I need to plant the raspberries there ASAP.  I think I shall have to get some of the chaps to help...

I have a chaenomeles against a wall, which has long been past its best and I need the space for raspberries.  It has been cut down to the ground, but all efforts to dig/chop/lever the stump out have failed, due to the stony ground and proximity to the wall.  Can I just leave it to rot and plant round it, or will it throw up new shoots forever more?  And if not, any advice on how to get it out?!
