It has certainly filled in some gaps although I am a little wary of that death entry for Lucy in 1954 given she was born in 1870 and therefore would have been age 84 rather than 79 as recorded.
That she died in (or near) Norwich fits with Ashton Curl having died there but there certainly must be some doubt about it being the same Lucy Curl.
1. The birth certificate for Lucy Waters Glasson shows she was born 17th August 1870 2. The 1939 England and Wales Register of 'a' Lucy Curl at Norwich gives a birthdate of 24th August 1874 but does indicate she was a widow 3. There is a 'Rose Curl' with Lucy in 1939 with a birthdate of 12th November 1907 - if a daughter of Lucy then possibly born South Africa but so far I have not been able to find her in SA records.
You will see that the Rose Curl in the 1939 register was married. I believe that this Rose Curl is Lucy's daughter-in-law, Rose Winter, who married another Ashton Thomas Curl in 1930 at Norfolk, so he was probably the son of Lucy. The two blanked out entries in 1939 are likely to be the two grand children of Lucy.
Also the age at death seems to match the age at marriage and the age at 1939 Register. For some reason after the 1891 census Lucy shows herself to be younger than she really was.

Ah! I missed the 'M' against the name of Rose Curl. So yes, you are correct and she was indeed the wife of Ashton Thomas Curl the younger who stated on the marriage certificate that he was the son of Ashton Thomas Curl. At the time of the 1930 marriage young Ashton Curl was living at 12 Denbigh Road Norwich which was also the residence of parents Ashton and Lucy Curl in 1926 when Ashton senior died and when Probate was granted in 1927.
