Cox apples are very challenging as they are prone to many things.  Unfortunately many people want to grow them as most people know the name!

Look on a good site such as the RHS site to find out what is wrong.

Poor choice for a restricted growth environment, it really needs plenty of room. And as Welshonion says not the best variety for pest and disease resistance. Even though I love the taste it would be far better to choose a more effective modern variety for your situation - Sunset on M27 rootstock would be my recommendation.
