Download the NY City Dept of Health death cert request form at:
(This is for all deaths within NY City limits from 1949-present.
Death records prior to that are at the NYC Municipal Archives;
for those see:
The death certificate will show place of burial but not cause
of death, just "natural causes" if such was the case. It will
also list the physician and the undertaker - you should contact
both for any info they might have.
After you get the death certificate (and if the cause of death
was in fact "natural"), your _son_ can make a special request to
learn the cause of death. He'll probably have to have a physician
write a letter saying the information is necessary for a "death risk
assessment", and I think the info is sent to the physician. (I've
never done this myself.)
