Abstract: We study the index theorem and Chern character of an admissible pseudomanifold $X^{\dagger }$ with one singular stratum. Under a condition on the link, we give a de Rham type realization of the Goresky-MacPherson-Siegel $\cal L$-classes on $X^{\dagger }$ in terms of curvature forms and eta invariant of the link.
