After the dead is buried it is not only lawful but desirable to make dua for the maghfirah (forgiveness) of a deceased person, firmness in Iman and ease in question. Many hadith assert about it:
عن عثمان رضى الله عنه قال كان النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم إذا فرغ من دفن الميت وقف عليه فقال استغفروا لأخيكم ثم سلموا له بالتثبيت فإنه الأن يسأل (مشكوة شريف 1/ 26 باب اثبات عذاب القبر)

Allah knows Best!
