Peers can be knights too, even princes, William is a Knight of the Garter, but the title Sir is not used when Lord is. Possibly the title is entered from a picklist and someone clicked on the wrong one, I think it should be Lord in this case (though he would be Lord Hawarden rather than Lord Robert Maude of course). Drop them a line
