One trustee remaining

I’m looking at a case where the settlor/trustee has died leaving only one trustee. We are currently awaiting a copy of the trust deed but it looks like a standard wording from Clerical Medical for their discounted gift trust / insurance bond arrangement. From what I can gather so far, a single trustee can’t appoint a co-trustee. What usually happens in a situation like this?
