I have a hedge that is gradually dying, I am losing about a foot of hedge every year, the roots and branches are drying up and look brittle and grey in appearance .The leave have stopped growing or very brown and dry. Any ideas on how I can save the rest of the hedge? Help needed. Please check out the photos.

This looks to be a privet hedge, in which case it is most likely verticillium wilt or even honey fungus which is affecting it.
