I think she was also carrying RAF Gladiators as well as the Hurricanes. Certainly more than 40 RAF personnel were among the 1500+ casualties, the few survivors were picked up the next day.
Also HMS Devonshire with the Norwegian Royal Family on board was within 100 miles and picked up some or all of a radio message from Glorious, but didn't act on what she received. although the final official report was made secret for 100 years (until 2041)
