Check out Joe Beine's update to his Online Searchable Death Indexes and Records. The landing page will give you a list of states that are hot links to lists of related records and indexes. At the bottom of the state list you will find links to 5 specific major cities' death records: Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles, New York, and St. Louis.
If the reference is to a site where a fee is required, the list alerts you to that fact.
