Ron,

By doing so, the plenary indulgences will be granted for one soul in Purgatory or can also be for a group of people in Purgatory?

Usually, the plenary indulgence is for the person who does the works. If you gain a plenary indulgence, it is for yourself.

The all souls plenary indulgence is applied to one soul in Purgatory (not to a whole group). However, many souls in Purgatory benefit whenever we cooperate with grace and pray for them.

Even though it is commonly said that this indulgence is 'only' for a soul in Purgatory, you can only obtain it for yourself as well if you meet all of the conditions for gaining a plenary indulgence. So, it also applies to your own soul (but only once for yourself during the period of time when one might obtain successive plenary indulgences, one each day, for souls in Purgatory).
