It depends on the provisions of the trust deed. The trust deed will often stipulate that the founder can in his will nominate a replacing trustee for himself. If there is not such a clause in the trust deed such a nomination in a will will not be legally enforceable. The family and trustees might, however, still decide to honour the wishes.
