Deed of Appt/Retmnt on TRS service

Afternoon everyone

Could someone guide me on the following scenario:

Deceased died in 2013. Under terms of his will, he created a Property Trust for his surviving spouse. Spouse recently sold the property in 2021 and one of the Trustees has also retired.

I am currently registering the trust online as it was in existence on 06.10.2020 however do I need to input details of the retired trustee in? Or can I register the trust with the continuing and new trustee details?

Thank you in advance for your co-operation.

I believe that it is only the beneficial owners which all have to be reported from inception. The trustees are the trustees and so retired trustees are not relevant.
