I have an old pair of Wharfedale speakers which stopped playing any music whatsoever. One is still a bit beeping, while other one is completely quite. One was already repaired few years ago, only capacitors were replaced and that seemed to work. Here is an image of this repaired circuit:

Where should I start? What do you recommend?

That kind of depends on how old and exactly which model they are. Are they worth it?

I would disconnect and test each individual driver with a signal generator to make sure they work properly before I put any time or money into the crossovers.

If all the drivers work, I would replace ALL of the crossover capacitors and any resistors that appear to have overheated.

Make sure you use only NON-POLARIZED capacitors that are rated for 100 volts or higher.

PartsConneXion is a very good source for crossover capacitors

Here is a picture of original cross-over filter. What capacitors and resistor should I get for replacement?

I suggest that you call PartsConnexion and describe what you have and get them to help you with replacements.
