Mekaku City Actors and Sound of the Sky aren't anywhere to be seen in the UK.

I'll try to watch Wandering Son before it's gone though.

Yeah, I remember finding out about this show and then finding out it wasn't available, so I bookmarked it "elsewhere", haven't got round to watching it yet though.
I assume it just came to the end of it's licence period. If they pick it up again hopefully they'll pick up the UK rights as well.

Yeah Mekakucity Actors was one of the few Aniplex titles that presumably was with KAZE as it streamed on Animax UK instead, so Aniplex of America only had US/CA rights in general hence why it's not accessible on Crunchyroll or Funimation.

Sound of the Sky was probably in a similar situation thanks to Beez Entertainment, but at least the Blu-ray is affordable (though Region A) in the meantime.

Is there any reason why we don't have Gosick on Funi UK? Went to watch it with my 3 months trial and it's just the trailer.

I have no clue to be honest. I think it's either down to Funimation don't have UK rights or they do but haven't bothered to even make it available for the UK. Nichijou is a similar case.

Funimation has had a redesign on the rest of the webpages. Looks good, prefer this design over the original.

New Funi PS5 app seems like a huge improvement in every way so far. The in built subtitles are a nice addition!

So Funimation has an English dub for number24 uploaded seemingly out of nowhere, which is produced by, of all studios, NYAV Post. Why wouldn't you promote that?!

Link to the ANN page for details till Funimation announces it for real number24 (TV) - Anime News Network:W

Update: Looked into it, basically, number24 was previously announced for HV but there were no details on the dub (besides having one but wasn't specifically promoted on their blog, just on the product page on stores like Rightstuf) till the first 2 episodes were uploaded late yesterday, the rest launch on the street date of June 8th, probably (it already has the English credits edited in and so on).
