I have the Death Certificate number from the Index for a 1915 Death Record in Manhattan, NY

Is the place to find it this source only available in a LDS Facility?:
You can get it from the New York City Municipal Archives.

Go to

Fill in the certificate number, gender, date of death, etc.  Where it asks for name, enter the name of the deceased person (not your name).  Skip the part about additional years to search, because you already know the exact year.

Do NOT check the box for "Letter of Exemplification"; you don't need it for genealogy.

Select "Manhattan (New York County)", 1 copy, mailed copy, "add to shopping cart".

On the "Department of Records Shopping Cart" screen, select "domestic" shipping and then "checkout".

On the next page, you enter your payment information and shipping address.  On this page, you enter your own name (not the name of the deceased person).  The rest of the process is should be like ordering anything else online, except the delivery time.
