Maureen,
All you have to do is call the Newport City Clerks office. You can send a request by mail, but you must show a photocopy of your ID, they use this to verify your link to your Grandfather. The cost for Birth, & Death cert's are $15.00 . The Clerks office is strict with the rules - since RI is not an open records state - but they are very nice to deal with. (401) 846-9600 . If you are not sure where in RI your Grandfather died, you can also contact the RI Dept of Health (401) 222-2811. Finally there is an internet service vitalcheck.com (I think that is the address) that charges you a fee for the record. Hope this helps.
Rosemary
