sudo apt-get purge grub-common

that should remove 
grub-gfxpayload-lists, grub-pc, grub-pc-bin and grub2-common
alongside ... there are no reverse dependencies on them ... bootloaders
arent required packages in ubuntu at all, just rip it out (people can
use lilo if they want ;) ... or PXE, like you do ... or whatever else
works for them)
