Through numerous conversations with cemetery staff, it has been determined that Private Caffrey is definitely buried at Saint Joseph’s Cemetery, however, the exact plot isn’t known for certain. It’s likely he is in the Hurley plot as Anna Hurley of Hastings-on-Hudson, his cousin, is also listed as his next of kin.
