Multiple registrations

Hi, I'm new to the forum & have joined primarily to gain a better understanding of my birth certificate.

I have uncovered evidence that there are 4 separate registrations for myself over a five month period from the day I was born until the final registration.

Is there a particular reason why this would happen?

Isleworth records pre-1813

Does anyone know if pre-1813 Isleworth parish records will ever go online? Apparently, parish registers for All Saints, Isleworth are available for consultation on microfilm at the LMA. Only trouble is, it's near impossible for me to travel to London. I'm keen to take my 5 x great-grandparents further back into the 18th-century and beyond, if possible.
