If you are seeing yellow leaves, this could be a sign of drought (or sometimes conversely water logging). Box plants also prefer a partially shaded position so a combination of full sun and a dry soil may well have caused the leaves to yellow. If the plants are alive (check if the stems are green beneath the bark by scratching a stem with your finger nail) give them a feed with a balanced fertiliser and make sure the soil is kept moist but not waterlogged. Hopefully this should encourage some healthy growth and save you replacing them all.
