Nigel, I never saw the first post. You will have to continue to cut it down until the root peters out. Better to remove it root and all.

One I paid a kid to dig out, awful job but it was gone.
The long one on the terrace, the kids took out by tying it to the back of think it was a land cruiser back then; they may have dug around a little, I don't remember. Nothing ever popped back again from it.
For years I left it in grass, now I have tomatoes there and next year plan some roses and perennials. I can always grass it over again if I want. A fence usually means concrete to anchor the posts, am tired of that in my yard, hard to get out later. Probably most people leave it in.
The guy who used a little tractor to plow the strip for me was concerned about concrete in post holes. I remembered where they were when we had a fence, mostly not there. When he was done, I pulled a huge concrete form out of there that was way older and the wrong shape for the fence posts I ahd at the time.
Good riddance.
