You either have to be the parent, spouse, descendant, grandchildren, sibling, or legal representative of the person named in the death certificate.

Upon request you must also provide the necessary information in order to locate the certificate. This includes, but is not limited to, the full legal name of the deceased, the date of death, his Social Security number, etc., along with your personal data for eligibility to acquire such certificate such as proof of your relationship with the deceased.
