Faster than the usual algorithm I use. Here's a little tidyup:

;WITH
Step1 AS( SELECT a = @year%19, b = FLOOR(1.0*@year/100), c = @year%100),
Step2 AS( SELECT a,b,c,d = FLOOR(1.0*b/4), e=b%4, f=FLOOR((8.0+b)/25) FROM Step1),
Step3 AS( SELECT a,b,c,d,e,g = FLOOR((1.0+ b- f)/3) FROM Step2),
Step4 AS( SELECT a,d,e,h = (19*a+b-d-g+15)%30, i= FLOOR(1.0*c/4), k= @year%4 FROM Step3),
Step5 AS( SELECT a,h,l = (32.0+2*e+2*i-h-k)%7 FROM Step4),
Step6 AS( SELECT h,l,m = FLOOR((1.0*a+11*h+22*l)/451) FROM Step5)
SELECT easterSunday = DATEFROMPARTS(@Year, FLOOR((1.0*h+l-7*m+114)/31), 1+(h+l-7*m+114)%31)
FROM Step6

Apologies if this is a silly question. But I seem to get the following error when running your script

Msg 243, Level 16, State 1, Procedure ufn_inltab_getGregorianEasterSunday, Line 4
Type DATE is not a defined system type.

Ok, try changing date to datetime in the function(s). It seems like date as a datatype didn't exist before sql server 2008.

2005:

2008:

Best regards,
