It is possible, though I cannot think of an actual example to prove it.

I am a widow and have now included by deed poll my maiden name to my full name.

You would not have needed to change your name by Deed Poll to add your m/s as you do not lose your m/s on marriage.

You would just start using your name to be known as Sheila + M/S + Surname.

Legal documents will have you as Sheila M/S or Surname anyway.
