Q:  

Where can I find data on exact dates of death?

A:  

Here is a source of mortality, weather, and air pollution data for selected metropolitan areas in the United States. The time period covered is 1987-2000:

I am not certain how they created these files as exact dates of death are not available in public use files after 1989:

If a single state will work for you, data for North Carolina are publicly available. Files from states do not have the confidentiality restrictions:
