My eldest sister passed away and stated in her will:

“I appoint J be my executor and trustee.

lf J is unwilling or unable to act as my executor

and trustee I appoint S as my executor and trustee”

J agreed to be executor and trustee. J finalised the will and created 2 testamentary trusts for minors.
One testamentary trust will vest soon and J would like S to take over as trustee on the remaining one.
What is the process to change the trustee name from J to S?
