Although a person had married was it quite common for that person to have her death registration under her maiden name?

The name on a death registration would depend on the informant's knowledge of the deceased.
Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.
Remember - "They'll be found when they want to be found" !!!
If you don't ask the question, you won't get an answer.

In England, no. In Scottish, French and Italian records (at least up to the 19th century) it was the norm.

Also common in Manx Records, where the maiden name is added as an Alias.

E.G. Smith als Jones means Mrs Smith was formerly Jones.
