Not really, but it did give him some kind of parallel with Harry. That's mainly what was missing IMO, the contrast between these two young orphans. I don't think we needed to see the Gaunts or that old woman, but I think there were a lot of times when a little more discussion between Harry and Dumbledore would have made those memories more meaningful. Honestly they were kind of throwaway, the first one was never talked about and had nothing to do with horcruxes (beyond the cave teaser) and the second was just a way of confirming something Dumbledore seemed to suspect already. They were just sort of...there. I just think they could have done more than just show us Riddle being like the kid from The Omen.
