    Now, I might be missing something obvious here (wouldn't be the first time) but isn't this the same cross?

    Imperiale

    Lady Isabel

    And if it is the same cross then how come it was registered twice? Or does this happen?

    Isn't that interesting! Both are old enough to have to do records by hand, so maybe it was an oversight. Once computers were used, one would think it would have been caught.

    To my knowledge, the first name registration is the primary name, ie Lady Isabel. If you can look at a copy of the Original Works of name registrations, to 1946, you will find same crosses of paphs named 3 or more times. These were done by using various varieties of paphs. The problem is that the RHS never put any cross references or syn' references in OR deleted the incorrect names.
