As they married in Wolverhampton, this is possible, but with such a common name you really do need the marriage cert.

If you are local, you might try checking papers for notices of marriages/death in local newspapers. Copies should be available in the main library. These might have her middle name, or names of relatives.

Just to add, a couple of Ancestry trees have Sarah as Sarah Elizabeth, but no parents/ names, so I suspect they have made the assumption that she is the Sarah above.
BUT! Another tree has Sarah Elizabeth marrying someone else entirely.
Marriage cert it is then!
