As to Ashton: trios 2 and 3 are at IMSLP- scores and parts (digitized by Merton Music). I do very! much wish people would simply look before they asked, please :), as you did for the Allen...
(Indeed, the IMSLP "Category:For violin, cello, piano" has a fair amount of works/workpages in it - 810 at present. Not all of them by any means are -primarily- for piano trio- e.g. the Adagio religioso by Becker is a work for violin, cello and organ for which performance by standard piano trio is allowed by the composer - but skimming the list (and stopping at "Bl", as per your article") still reminds me of other works I'm curious about, e.g. the trios of Adolphe Blanc, Emile Bernard, and Henri Bertini among Gallic composers (one can even hear a simulated performance of a trio, and some other chamber works, by Bertini @ IMSLP- not half bad, I think, rather enjoyable imho...) - there's also a trio there by Balfe (which I think I may have heard, I'll have to see if I still have it.) Among "A" composers there's Altès who I haven't heard, but might be worth a look.
Some other ideas (fwiw) come to mind from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piano_trio_repertoire
- Aperghis, for instance, or Birtwistle. And at least according to the above site, Bloch wrote two works for piano trio- the nocturnes of 1924 and a trio so-named in 1925.
Also Arthur Berger's piano trio of 1980, while about it :) (was hoping for one by Wilhelm Reinhard Berger (1861-1911), a quite good composer, but I don't see any sign that his Op.94 trio for clarinet, cello and piano was intended for piano trio alternate (not even a violin alternate part).)
