Yes, even the same kadish, according to Gesher Hachayim 30:8:8. However, for a practical ruling, CYLOR.

I recall hearing a psak on a Rabbi Rakeffet shiur that as long as it's one Kaddish per person per day. So if a person says Kaddish six times per day, he could do it for up to six different people.
