No Leaves on Hornbeam

The brown plants are mixed with the plants that are growing, there doesn't seem to be any logic as to why the plants on either side of them are growing

Hi there, i planted about 70 hornbeam plants in march of this year, i bought them bare rooted and they were 4/5 feet tall, the problem is about half of them are thriving and the other half have no leaves on them at all, just the dead brown ones from last year. All of the hedging is planted in the same area, same soil, exactly the same amount of manure compost etc was given to each plant. I have scraped the stems of the bare plants and there seems to be green under the bark, which suggests to me that maybe they are still alive? I don't know whether to replace the  non growing plants this winter/spring or whether to give them a chance to grow next year. I don't want to end up with a half  grown patchy hedge. Any advice would be greatly appreciated
