Hi 1940 you need to discover where they are coming from. The brambles obviously didn't appear overnight are they growing in from a neighbour's garden or waste land? If you keep cutting back the canes and digging out the roots combined with finding out where they are coming from in the first place you should be able to get rid of.

Roundup Tree Stump and Root Weed Killer is being advertised as getting rid of brambles.
