No, you do not have to do this, but it is better if you could get it or a copy. If you can't then you need to see a solicitor and make a declaration/offer an indemnity to your uncle, so that he has some form of protection against a claim being made against him for paying out. I would try to keep him sweet as technically he can use trust funds to 'establish the correct facts', which means he could spend your money on legal fees. An alternative is to ask him to resign as trustee.
