Doubt if it's comphrey then, they're not smooth and don't pull up easily, even as babies. That which pulls out easily is usually annual. Someone said earlier that they'll go when you mow and I expect they will.
In those numbers it will be something that was there last year, or previous years, and seeded. cast your mind back to what was there last year. Are there photos to remind you?
Weeds are incredibly diverse, there are hundreds of them and it's not necessarily a weed. Though in your lawn it counts as a weed.
