From a quick glance, not completely accurate.
I wasn't having a dig, it's just helpful to know the gaps, what's out there to search down. Should you feel willing to make the appropriate corrections, it would be much appreciated.

edit: or anyone else, for that matter.
A few weeks ago, I was trainspottery enough to make an attempt. And yeah, it definitely looks like another 3-4 CDs worth. It can't have been easy making the cut, but I can see the rationale behind it.

So this is my Reckoning:

The Box Set contains all single & EP tracks (treating Slates as an LP and The Remainderer as an EP), EXCEPT: Peel Session tracks, download-only singles, the 7” with The Frenz Experiment, U.S. 80s-90s from the What's That Noise split EP, the 2 Librans demo 7", the Blind Man demo CD, Higgle-Dy Piggle-Dy from the Monks split single, and the following (66?) b-sides:
No Bulbs 3,  Slang King 2
Sleep Debt Snatches, Mark’ll Sink Us,
Hit The North Parts 3-6, Australians in Europe, Northerns in Europ,
Guest Informant, Twister,
Big New Prinz, Wrong Place Right Time no. 2,
Kurious Oranj (live), Hit The North (live),
Telephone Thing (extended), Telephone Dub,
Zandra, Arms Control Poseur, Black Monk Theme pt II,
Zagreb, The Funeral Mix, Life Just Bounces,
Don’t Take the Pizza,
Return, Dangerous,
The Knight The Devil and Death, Free Ranger,
The Re-Mixer, Lost in Music,
M5, Cab Driver, Happy Holiday, Behind the Counter (remix),
Interlude/Chinilism,
Ivanhoe’s Two Pence, Spencer Must Die (live), 10 Houses of Eve (remix), Calendar, Scareball, Ol’ Gang (live), Masquerade – Mr Natural Mix,
Birthday Song (new mix), The REAL Life of Crying Marshal, Tom Raggazzi (new mix),
Susan vs Youthclub (remix),
(Birtwistle’s) Girl in Shop, Recovery Kit 2#,
Portugal,
Where’s the Fuckin Taxi? Cunt, My Ex Classmates’ Kids [Mix 4]
I Can Hear the Grass Grow (slow version), Bo Doodak,
My Door Is Never (rough mix), Reformation! (edit),
Strangetown (live),
Mister Rode, Rememberance R, Say Mama/Race With The Devil, Touchy Pad
Dedication (remix), Wise Ol’ Man (inst.), Venice with the Girls, Facebook Troll/No Xmas for John Quay, All Leave Cancelled (X
Where’s the Fuckin Taxi? Cunt, My Ex Classmates’ Kids [Mix 4]

Misread that and thought for a minute that there were multiple mixes of 'Taxi'...

I don't think we'll ever see this again at the original Cherry Red price; where it is available (e.g., Amazon-linked independent sellers), it's now around the 100 dollars/80 euro/70 pound range. Don't even look up what the Peel Sessions box is going for now...

I wonder if, given the circumstances, demand has been significantly higher than originally expected?

Could be... 

If they do go really expensive in the long run, I won't be buying.

The cheapest 'used' on Amazon right now is £99.70! 😨

I'm going to go home and lovingly caress mine in all its cardboard splendour, bought for (I think) no more than about £15 from Fopp, 10 years ago ❤

I was in Glasgow town centre yesterday - Fopp and HMV both had the 3CD, Fopp had the 7CD. £50 for the 7CD.

And neither can shift the Fontana box and have taken a fiver off it but given that Fopp are owned by HMV these days, that's not much of a coincidence.

Cherry Red is a business, if there's sufficient demand they'll repress. However, it's likely that orders from retailers soaked up the last handful of the 7CD and that's it gone.

The 7CD version eventually showed up in my local HMV last week, they seemed to have only got one copy in and I bought it. £50.

Good point. I should try my local record store, you never know.

I wasn't going to get the 7CD Box as I have most of the tracks etc but after a while I thought, why not? Anyway, I love it and for whatever reason many of the tracks sound better than I remember them. This got me thinking about what we need is an 11 CD reissue or a 4 CD supplement. Cum on CR!

For anybody in the area in need, there were three copies of the 7CD still in HMV Oxford Street in London on Friday, ie the day before yesterday.

Still two of the 7CD left yesterday evening, and one New Facts Emerge vinyl left in the London HMV, if anyone’s interested. I think the NFE is the last one in Central London, there was still three last week. Anyway..

Damn good review/ article. Gets some facts wrong (pretty sure Mark was 27, not 37, when Perverted by Language came out, etc), but seems to know his subject, and makes a valid attempt to convince the unwashed of the worthiness of the subject. 9/10, needs an editor.
It takes grace to play the second fiddle well

I ordered the 7CD from Amazon a couple of weeks ago (after my girlfriend suggested I spend the refunded ticket money from the Koko gig that never was on a special Fall-related item), despite them mentioning in the description that it had sold out and they didn’t know when they’d be getting more in stock. After reading this topic I’d assumed they’d not be getting any more in, but I got an email on Friday saying it’d been despatched and it arrived yesterday. So worth a try in case they somehow manage to source any more.

Thanks for this, it's what I came here to find.  

The excised b-sides alone would make a great compilation.

And breathe !!!!!!
The day Mark passed I bought NFE and dithered in this .The next day thought right take the plunge.Everywhere sold out or inflated prices. I rang Cherry Red who have told me its getting a repress 5-6 weeks that was 25th of Jan.Yet I couldn't wait just in case..... I had bought one off eBay for £62 that never came...I was prepared for the inflated price as long as it came.Yet I suspected like me was waiting ,just waiting.Even though I asked the question After the event I checked his feedback and is renown for not sending or taking forever. In between this I had been checking Discogs .Amazon ,EBay and the Cherry Red website twice daily.On Saturday I typed in the title for the 50th time and Rough Trade came up.I bought and thought I would get an email saying sorry. It came today £49.99 whoop whoop .I also bought the Red box set for £62 as its not going to come down anytime soon
I was fortunate enough to buy the back catalogue when it was relatively cheap.The prices on a lot have crept up steadily over the years ,even before his death. I also bought a second hand Hex for £25 .Wise ol Man ep and Brixs book as well as Pander Panda Panza .That will do for now.
