Subject: Re: [LON] Second marriage -- which surname for bride?

It would have been the norm for her to marry under her first married name,
but it is not unknown for women to revert to their maiden name for a second
marriage (perhaps the first marriage was unhappy and she chose to forget
it). If you know that she remarried, presumably you know the name of her
second husband. Have you tried searching for the marriage under his name?
