Give this website at try for burial records.
It is one of the two Rensselaer County websites.

Hello, my name is Avi, and I just recently subscribed to the list.? My
great-grandmother Bella Goldstein was born in Troy or thereabouts in 1897.?
Her father died in 1903, and afterwards her mother moved the family to New
York City.? It looks like she had a very sizable extended family of
Goldsteins who remained in Troy, including her grandparents.? I was able to
get pictures of the graves of my great-grandmother's father and her
grandparents, but I have thus far had only limited success in getting any
records pertaining to their deaths.? I was able to get the grandfather's
death certificate and letter of administration, but that is about it.? When
I wrote to Troy City Hall for death certificates for my gggf and ggggm, none
were on file.? Both were living in Troy at the time of their deaths, but I
do not know where they died.?
I am not sure what my next step should be in my search.? If anyone has any
suggestions, I would be most appreciative.? All my family members were
buried at the Bethel Cemetery, which as far as I can tell, does not have any
kind of office or place to contact.?
